September 5, 2002—September 28, 2002 | Reception Thursday, Sept. 2nd, 6-8PM
In Geoffrey Chadsey’s meticulously rendered drawings, composed only by using purple and green watercolor pencil, the artist’s subject matter appears to be images of young men, perhaps friends, engaged in a closed narrative. The viewer is challenged by their banality. The painstaking detail of the line quality reveals what seem to be ordinary snapshot type compositions, but Chadsey has imbued the images with newfound significance. The details of the surroundings unveil a sense of familiarity. Chadsey’s skill elucidates rather than masks his personal concerns.
